by Ally Condie

ReachedReached, the third and final installment of Ally Condie's Matched trilogy, follows Cassia, Ky and Xander as they get closer to toppling down the society that has taken their choices away from them. Cassia and Ky have officially joined the Rising and believe they can be together, but they soon find themselves separated once again. Xander, also a member of the Rising, finds himself completely trusting of the rebellion that plans to take over the Society. The three of them must rely on themselves in order to survive in this world that both the Rising and the Society have created. Can they thrust the Rising? And will they even live through this horrible world that has been created out of manipulation and lies?

I really enjoyed Xander's narration in this book. His voice brought a fresh, new perspective that changed how the reader looked at the story. I think it also provided a great ending to this amazing trilogy, because it explained all the mysteries surrounding the characters, the Society, and the Rising. The storyline was fantastic and Condie was able to end the trilogy in a way that did not seem forced or unnatural.

I would recommend Reached to people who have read the two previous books. Also, this would also be a good read for those who enjoy dystopian novels that contain both romance and action.
